Seven Metro Nashville Police officers are on "administrative assignment" after three purported pages from the Covenant School shooter's notebook were released by a conservative media personality.
The seven officers have "full police power" and the assignments are "non-punitive" and meant to protect the ongoing investigation, according to a spokeperson with MNPD. Nashville police are not naming the officers, the Tennessean reports.
The notebook, and what's written inside, is the subject of pending litigation. Several groups, including The Tennessean, sued Metro Nashville after records requests for access to those documents were denied. The school and several families have intervened in the lawsuit to prevent the release of the documents.
Nashville Mayor Freddie O'Connell ordered an investigation into the alleged leak Monday.
